I was hesitant to try the Dr. Hauschka Foundation as the reviews weren’t amazing. However after spending more time reading them, I realized most reviews were comparing it to an older formulation they liked better. I had never tried the older formulation (in fact, I was under the impression this was a skincare line and had only just begun selling makeup) so I had nothing to compare it to.
The team at Dr. Hauschka kindly sent me the four lightest shades for review purposes. I suspected I would be Shade 2 (Almond) or Shade 3(Chestnut) and sure enough, after swiping both on my jawline, I appear to be between the two. I actually think 3 would have been perfect for me in the summer when I had a bit of a tan, and 2 will be a perfect match in a month or two when what’s left of my summer tan fades. For now, I’m using shade 2 with a light dusting of Laura Gellar foundation as it adds just enough all over color to make the foundation a perfect match for me. I don’t know if it’s this foundation, the LG powder or the new skincare products I’m using, but my skin looked amazing the first time I used this foundation. There was an all over glow I don’t think I’ve ever had, and minor redness/discolorations were gone! I actually didn’t want to take my makeup off at the end of the day because I was so happy with how my skin looked!
The foundation is lightweight so it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and doesn’t cake. It really does provide a smooth even canvas for the rest of your makeup. The foundation includes good for your skin ingredients such as macadamia oil which gives skin a radiance, pomegranate to help with skin regeneration and turnover, and coconut oil to moisturize the skin. These ingredients work together to treat my skin while wearing makeup which is great! I think my skin is starting to look better just from continued use of this, my skin tone is more even and looks decent even when I don’t have the foundation on, which is hard to do!
Although this formulation isn’t as loved as the previous one, I am really loving this foundation. It’s lightweight, matches my skin really well, and the ingredients leave my skin looking better over time. I am so happy with this foundation and will continue to purchase this. *These products were sent to me for review purposes. All opinions are my own.*
